Giannis has a P-1 Visa as a foreign athlete working in the U.S.
The U.S. Embassy in Greece issued a P Visa for Support Personnel to Giannis' dad, Charles, who qualified as providing emotional and mental support as well as developing Giannis' ability in his sport of choice.
Giannis did not start playing basketball until he was a teenager and both he and his older brother, Thanasis, were initially instructed by their dad.
Thanasis is now playing in the NBA Development League for the Delaware 87ers and is eligible for the 2014 NBA draft.
Giannis' mom, Veronica, and Kostas, age 16, and Alexandros, 12, qualify on the same support visa.
Injury report. John Henson (wrist) is expected to be available off the bench after missing the past three games, while Caron Butler (high ankle sprain) joins O.J. Mayo (back practicing after a lengthy illness), Gary Neal (back), Ekpe Udoh (ankle), and Carlos Delfino (leg) on the shelf. In short, everyone we're interested in seeing on the court should be available.
